These Times…

So… How’s things? Missing the music? I am. I’ve been keeping an eye on current events and they bring to mind a number of titles that would seem applicable to the scenes that are being witnessed. No doubt a lot has happened since the last broadcast including a change in the cast of characters we’ve…

3 Days to go…

3 Days to go And then we’ll see… There will be some changes but I’m not at liberty to tell. You’ll just have to check back often… I’m just sayin’… © 2015, WBPM NetRADIO.com. 2004 – 2019 All rights reserved. Duplication without permission is not permitted.

I’m thinking about ending it…

The station that is… (don’t panic) After 11 years with all of the costs and time involved … I’m really debating whether or not I should continue this internet station… It’s been one hell of a blast DJ’ing the live sets and programming the shows… WBPM NetRADIO has allowed me the opportunity to work with…

March

Finally March is here… That means… all of that cold you guys up north are suffering with is not much longer to last and… Spring is near…and… The clocks move ahead this month and best of all… The Winter Music Conference for 2015 is happening in South Beach Fl. What is that you ask? Who…

Valentines Day

View image | gettyimages.com So, once again its “Valentine’s Day“ Ever wonder who was this Valentine dude and was this person really all that “mushy”? Did a little digging and it seems that the Catholic Church recognizes about three different saints named either Valentinus or Valentine. One line goes that Roman emperor Claudius II decreed single…

2015

Uhhh (tap! tap!) this mic on? Good tidings to all and all of that stuff. Hope you’ve been well or at least trying to be so. This will no doubt prove to be an interesting year. Changes coming to the station very soon. Stay tuned okay? In the meantime, don’t be shy checking out the…

If You Could…

Internet radio music lovers, if you could control the “Wayback Machine”, who’s music would you bring back? Minnie? Luther? James? Vesta? Who? I got to thinking about that as I was hunting down new music for upcoming sets. I started thinking back to what got me listening to certain artists even at the young age that…

So…

    So… Spring has sprung and summer is knocking on our doors… The summer mix set is coming. Working hard on it. Those of us who love spoken words lost a voice this morning. Maya Angelou passed on today as she continues her journey. May we all listen to the message of her words…

The World is A Ghetto

The World Is A Ghetto ~ Or so it would seem with all of the drama going on all over the place lately… Disappearing planes, Putin putting the moves on the Ukraine (w0nder what he was like as a kid huh?). Politicians demonizing those less fortunate. Crazy. (Why is The Temptations’ “Ball of Confusion playing in…

The Other Duke…George Duke

The Other Duke…George Duke   Our most recent Duke, George, left us Monday August 5th 2013 and with his passing a gap in sound has been created. I’d like to send my deepest condolences to those who knew and loved him best. I know I miss him. That man over there on the right played…

Music Radio…

Music Radio… Seems to be so commercialized. You get a few good songs mixed in with a stretch of music that you hear over and over and over again peppered with the same commercials. That was how I felt when I first started this station years back. Adding to that was the fact that I…

Bull

Bull As in “This is some…” One night in San Diego my car a mint condition Electric Blue ’73 440 Charger, died on the way home from work. I was about 3 blocks away when it happened. I was able to pull into a parking space and lock up the car. The plan was to…

The System is Up & Running!

FYI Kiddies… From Mic Murphy… Oh wait… You say you don’t know who this is? Let me jog your memories… Remember Eddie Murphy‘s “Coming To America” & “Beverly Hills Cop”? You heard their music. Remember “You’re In My System”? “Don’t Disturb This Groove?” Coming back now huh? Okay, Jeff Lorber fans, listen to his “Step…

Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing

When you hear “Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing” you know what that implies right? So how come so many young artists fall for the game where someone claims to be a “manager” only to turn out to be about exploiting the individual seeking to make their way into the music business? And, why do those naive…

Just wanted to go to the movies…

“We just wanted to go to the movies!!” Is what the lady said as the news hounds interviewed her and the other survivors of that midnight madness at the movie theater over in Aurora. Surely someone will be asking at some point “What were you doing when…”. I know what I was doing…. Sitting up…

False Grooves

  “Please do not be alarmed…Remain Calm…” Ever hear a song that contains untruths? you know… a lyric or chant that says something that you know is a lie? Or have you heard something recited until its like that song you hear over and over again until you start to hum along? If not, you…

Rant

Thought’s that crossed my mind while driving and listening to music… I warned ya… If this sounds like you…I don’t care. Ladies, do the planet a favor. Put your war paint on before you get behind the wheel. Don’t tie up traffic driving in the middle lane 20 mph slower than the rest of the world…

See What I Mean?

By now you’ve heard the latest news…right? So I won’t tell you who it was or anything like that. So let’s just say “Damn not you too…”   Peace and love, DJ © 2012, WBPM NetRADIO.com. 2004 – 2019 All rights reserved. Duplication without permission is not permitted.

Thanks for the ride…

  Got sick and tired of posting when someone passed. That’s why you didn’t see nothing new for a minute… (You coulda dropped a line yanno?) I had to stop, though, and post about the passing of Don Cornelius. Instead of waxing nostalgic about the who what when and where…just check this out… https://youtu.be/QJdaJ5_li10 Check out…

Where you hear…

You New Yorkers out there remember back in the day when WBLS used to have Frankie Crocker do the station call letters in that booming echoing voice? “WBLS…The Total Black Experience In Sound Where You Hear…” Then in full blown stereo he’d rattle off like 400 artists names for what seemed like 20 minutes listing…

Wow…pt. 2

Wow…pt.2 goes like this… I get an email with a link to an article about what I posted recently here and it turns out very interesting indeed. So after all of the fuss it seems that Sprint put the word out to the OEMS to get that software off of the devices a.s.a.p. Looks like…

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Just sending out a shout out to all of you who’ve been listening to the station and visiting this site. Wanted to wish you all the best this Thanksgiving no matte what your situation might be at this time. I know a number of us are dealing with some real liquid hell right…

Ohhh Vesta…

(That’s what I said when the news got to me …) Ohhh Vesta  not you too… Seems like everyday signs of our mortality being shown to us along our travels. Vesta Williams showed us how beautiful sound could be. Vesta caught my attention with “Don’t You Blow A Good Thing”. My reaction was “Who Dat!?!?”…

Connections & Disconnections

You know that saying “Small World”? It’s all about connections and disconnections. For example, consider a band like Zapp. Started by Lester and Roger Troutman, the group grew into the powerhouse most of us know as Zapp. But, before that it was Roger and the Human Body. Through a childhood friendship with Bootsy Collins that…

Before Sept. 11th 2001

Okay so I see on TV all of these shows replaying the nightmare that was 9/11. In the mix there was a show going over the events in people’s lives of the day before. The show reminded me of something that happened two days before Sept. 11th 2001. So here goes… Prior to that day,…
